Choir Man Posted December 2, 2020 Share Posted December 2, 2020 Having spent an evening recording with our organist followed by a few evenings getting my virtual choir organised for Christmas, I was wondering how other members will be celebrating this rather different Christmas season. At my church all the usual services have been replaced by Zoom offerings. Instead we a producing a pre-recorded Nine Lessons & Carols (using copyright free music and home-grown descants). This will then form part of an 'installation' in the church. The church will remain open all day every day (as it usually is) and, along with the Nativity and other Christmas displays, 9 L&C will be played on a continuous loop. People can then drop in at any time for as long as they like to hear the Christmas message in a COVID-safe manner. Not sure if, at just over 3 weeks long, this will be the longest carol service ever? Other than a short service on Christmas day, which hopefully we can have the organ and a couple of family bubbles forming a small choir, there will be no live singing in services for the foreseeable future. The good news about outdoor singing ( https://www.churchofengland.org/resources/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches ) means that the choir may be able to do some carol singing in the churchyard the week before Christmas. Best wishes to all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
